1 Dr. Nikola Ružinski, State Secretary Ministry of Environmental Protection, Physical Planning and Construction, Croatia STRATEGIES FOR SUSTAINABLE WASTE MANAGEMENT Ministerial round table Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD-18) United Nations, New York May 2010

2 What have we done since Rio 1992 and Johannesburg 2002? How far have we advanced towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals? What are the remaining obstacles and challenges? 2

3 What have we done? New legal framework for waste management (Basel, Rotterdam, Stockholm conventions ) New technologies in production and waste management; replaced products and materials Enhanced public knowledge and awareness More investments in waste management, enhanced monitoring, improved control 3

4 Major challenges: Barriers and constraints to proper waste management and promotion of 3R Quantity of waste Composition of waste Organization of waste management Financing of waste management Responsibility for generated waste Cleaner production and consumption Illegal management (shipment, disposal) 4

5 3R REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE 3R - DEVELOPED COUNTRIES High percentage separate collection enhanced public awareness Developed capacity for recycling and reuse available financial resources High demand and market for secondary material industrial capacity 5

6 3R - DEVELOPING COUNTRIES Create interest for: Reduction levying charges on production and purchase of products Separate collection (increase the percentage of return of useful waste ) - incentives for consumers Reuse/Recycling subsidies for recycling and separate collection - business development Financial basis: Polluter-pays principle Success in all these areas should enhance public awareness and business interest 6

7 Waste management in Croatia Population: 4,500,000 Capital city: 800,000 Total area: 87,609 sq.km Land area: 56,542 sq.km Territorial sea area: 31,067 sq.km Total length of coast: 5,835 km N of islands: 1,185 (47 inhabited) 7

8 Policy framework for sustainable waste management Waste Management Strategy (2005) sets strategic goals Waste Management Plan (2007) implementation framework for the Strategy Waste Management Act (2005),(2009) legal basis National Strategy on Sustainable Development (2009) overarching framework: protects and preserves national resources 8

9 Waste Management Strategy Remediation and closure of existing local landfills (dumpsites) Remediation of highly burdened areas former industrial sites Development of waste management centers with pre-treatment of waste prior to final disposal Development of recycling facilities and primary selection of useful raw materials Enhanced public knowledge and awareness Establishment of an integral waste management system 9

10 A V O I D A N C E WASTE EDUCATION CLEANER PRODUCTION CLEANER CONSUMPTION LESS PACKIGING RESPONSIBILITY OF BUYERS AND CONSUMERS Integral waste management system WASTE GENERATION REDUCTION U S E D I S P O S A L GENERATED WASTE SEPARATE COLLECTION REUSE RECYCLING AND RECOVERY PRE-TREATEMENT (MBT) THERMAL TREATMENT OTHER TREATMENTS REMAINING WASTE ORGANIZED LANDFILLS SECONDARY RAW MATERIALS AND COMPOST ENERGY ENERGY P R O D U C T I O N 10

11 Integral Waste Management System REUSE 20-25% 20-25% 3-7% 25-35% SEPARATE COLLECTION RECYCLING MECHANICAL BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT THERMAL RECOVERY (RDF) 20-25% LANDFILL 11

12 Waste Management Plan PRIMARY SELECTION AND RECYCLING OF USEFUL RAW MATERIALS WASTE MANAGEMENT CENTERS (WMCs) Private investments concessions for collection and recycling Polluter-pays principle Incentives from generated revenues Establishment of an extra budgetary fund Future WMCs - 18 for 21 counties No landfills on islands only waste transfer stations Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) to reduce landfill area at WMC; energy production from biogas 12

13 Financing Revenues: Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (EPEEF), extra-budgetary fund - major financing agency SO 2, NOx, CO2 emission charges (energy production, motor vehicles ) Polluter-pays principle (packaging materials, electric goods, electronics, vehicles, batteries, accumulators, oil, grease, tires ) Financing: Primary selection incentives Recycling - subsidies for recycling Infrastructure in recycling and collection private investments 13

14 Waste Management Act Regulations and Ordinances Packaging Waste charged per unit / incentives for return Waste Oils charged per weight / collection free of charge Batteries charged per weight / return free of charge End of life vehicles charged per weight / incentives for return per weight WEEE - charged per weight / pick-up free of charge Tires - charged per unit / pick-up free of charge Asbestos specialized pick-up free of charge Demolition waste concession for licensed operators Medical waste concession for licensed operators 14

15 Waste Management Centers Financial Mechanisms Public cost (landfills, infrastructure) EPEEF& EU funds (80%), local authorities (20%) Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) loans or private sector (PPP) 15

16 Green Economy - Facilities for recycling: PET, Al-cans, glass, paper, plastic, ELV, WEEE, oil, tires. - Facilities for separate collection: concessions for different types of waste - Expansion of waste management services: new employment - Framework for further development of partnerships Packaging Waste Regulation rid the country of PET bottles, Al-cans and glass in only two months Substantially enhanced changes in public knowledge and awareness concerning waste issues 16

17 Key issues KNOWLEDGE: How to ensure that everybody understands and is aware of the options and benefits of sustainable waste management? PARTICIPATION: How to develop effective participation and partnerships in all stages of sound waste management with all relevant stakeholders IMPLEMENTATION: How to maximize the CSD mandate to bring about effective coordinated and concrete action on the ground? 17./././
